analysis

Oftenly, Organizations need either crisis or burning platform to force change. They respond either by jumping or expire into flames. During IT evolution, automating the recurring tasks related to data to reduce the employing cost using computers was the main objective of organization. To achieve this, IT experts spent long hours in documenting and implementing them using the computerized systems.

In later stages, organizations started utilizing IT to achieve this goal. However, due to lack of experience in planning the results were not up to the expectations. For example, organizations started developing systems using the latest technology without considering development necessity. The customers were not satisfied and got frustrated by the systems.

Waking at this alarming situation, Organizations began to hire a group of technical experts who knew to design systems and also to translate the requirements into lines of code. These experts are called System Analyst.  These professionals also helped in developing systems but in an unorganized way. Even though they had proficiency in developing systems they lack in business acumen. In this case, there is a requirement who can analyse the need for the system, then Business Analysts evolved and had been felt in the IT industry.

Today, there is a huge requirement for Business Analyst in both technical and business areas irrespective of the domains. Over the last two decades, the role of Business Analyst has evolved significantly.

Role of Buisness Analyst

Everything you need to know about CO-PA and its Applications

co-pa

In this article, we shall understand CO-PA and its important features in SAP Business Warehouse.

A drill down report which allows slice and dice multidimensional sales profitability analysis is called as Costing and Profitability Analysis (CO-PA). This helps in analysing different characteristics or segments such as product, market, customer, product hierarchy, market and profit center. Customer master or material master is the standard SAP functionalities which fills most of the characteristics.

In SAP BW 7.0, enables you to evaluate market segments which are classified into various strategic business units such as sales organization, products and customers.

The main aim of the CO-PA is to support internal accounting and decision-marketing by providing sales, marketing, product management and corporate planning as well.

We have two forms of Profitability Analysis are supported namely:

  • Costing-based Profitability Analysis classifies costs and revenues according to value fields and valuation approaches. It provides an access to complete, short-term profitability report at all time.
  • Account-based profitability Analysis organizes accounts and uses accounting-based valuation approach. The main characteristic is it uses cost and revenue elements. In this approach, the report is permanently acquiescent to financial accounting.

Before we learn applications of CO-PA, let’s understand the features of CO-PA.

Features of CO-PA

The following are the important features of CO-PA:

  • Master Data

You can define the basic structures in the form of master data in profitability analysis. Using this, you can evaluate characteristics and the categories for values. The value-fields are used to store data for analysis in costing-based CO-PA whereas; the values are structured by account in account-based CO-PA.

Either using SAP master data or CO-PA derivation rules, additional characteristics can be derived based on the manual primary transactions. Multidimensional profitability segment is formed by combination of characteristics and used in analysing profitability by comparing costs and revenues.

features-of-co-pa

  • Actual Postings

These postings are the most important source of information. In real-time, you can transfer both sales orders and billing documents from the sales and distribution application component. In addition to this, you can also transfer external data from R3 systems and also transfer costs from cost centers, orders and projects.

In costing-based CO-PA, you can evaluate sales orders to automatically detect sales deductions or costs.

  • Information system

It lets you analyse existing data interactively from a profitability standpoint using the features of CO-PA tool. Using drilldown or switching functionalities, you can navigate through datacubes. Depending on the active type of profitability Analysis, the system displays data in value fields or accounts and also shows to which report structure it is assigned.

application

Applications

Profitability Analysis and Profit-Center Accounting are the two important applications which offer effective tools for analysing organization’s profitability. Let us see each application in brief:

  • Profitability Analysis allows you to evaluate profitability in market segments and organizational units such as business areas and company codes. The important goal is to offer decision support from Market-oriented viewpoint.

This application is used in any branches such as wholesale, retail, chemical, mechanical and service industries with any form of production of an organization. The data can be evaluated periodically based on the order or project.

  • Profit-Center Accounting evaluates internal profit and loss of profit centers. This also allows analysing and evaluating different units within the company. The structuring of profit centers can be done according to function, region and product. It is one of the components in Module Enterprise Controlling.

This application is used in any branches such as wholesale, retail, chemical, mechanical and service industries with any form of production of an organization. In this application, profit-relevant data is displayed periodically.

Five Steps to Understand Product Costing in SAP FICO

In controlling module, product costing is used to value the internal cost of materials and production for management accountability and accounting. Many people avoid due its complexity, as integration of high cost with other modules.

The five steps in understanding product costing in SAP FICO are:

product costing

Now let learn each step of product costing in detail.

Step #1: Cost Center Planning

Cost center planning is the elementary step in understanding product costing. The main objective of this phase is to plan total dollars and quantities in each cost center plant.

Prerequisites:

  • Company codes and plants in organizational structure are planned.
  • Master data for profit centers, cost centers, primary and secondary cost elements and activity types.

In transaction KP06, cost center dollars are scheduled by Activity type and cost element. Fixed and variable dollars can be entered. User can plan costs in production cost centers which wind up through allocations. In transaction KP26, the cost center quantities are planned by Activity type. Based on the earlier year’s actual values, activity rate can be manually entered. Planning activity quantities based on useful installed capacity accounts for interruption is the best practice.

Step #2: Activity Rate Calculation

The main aim of this phase is to estimate the rates of each activity plan in each cost center in a plant.

Pre-requisites: 

  • Cost Center Plans are entered: Plan costs in KP06 and Plan activity units in KP26

Once we plan our cost center dollars and quantities, it’s time to calculate the activity rates which are implemented to value internal activities to produce products. We can also use a blended approach and plan rates for few cost centers and activities and to calculate other rates based on the last activities.

Once we plan costs for all cost centers, we can avoid the next step of plan allocations. Use plan assessments and distributions to allocate costs when the planned costs acquired in overhead cost centers.

The key dissimilarity between assessments and distributions is that distribution keeps the primary cost element (Identity) of the cost. Assessments are secondary cost elements which act as a cost shipper to move costs. We can use assessments, distributions or blended approach of both. The plan assessments and distributions are created in Transactions KSV7 and KSU7 and executed in KSUB and KSVB transactions.

Once the costs are assigned, we must review the Cost center Actual/Plan/Variance report. Now, execute the cost center plan which rips cost when we have more than one activity type. The cost has to be ripped based on the activity quantity and other source. Using Transaction KSPI, activity type rates are calculated. If the cost is adverse, you can revise the cost plans and recalculate the rates.

Step #3: Quantity Structure

This step helps you to estimate the components of manufactured goods, cost of sold goods based on the BOM and Routing.

Pre-requisites:

Master data is created:

  • Material Masters (including MRP, Accounting and Cost views)
  • Bill of Materials (BOM)
  • Work Centers (Cost Centers and Activity Types)
  • Routings (Product Planning) or
  • Master Recipes (Production Planning – Process Industries)
  • Production Versions
  • Product Cost Collectors (Production Planning Repetitive Manufacturing)

Quantity Structure is a key concept. It is a fundamental integration point between Finance and Logistics modules. There are several components of Quantity Structure namely:

  • In a product, a material master with a distinctive fit/form in a plant. It contains many views such as Material Resource Planning (MRP) views, accounting views and costing views. Procurement type and special procurement are the two key fields in costing. The procurement field refers to a material which is created internally, purchased or both. Whereas special procurement refers to a material which is sub-contracted, purchased from another plant.
  • Bill of Materials (BOM) is created for each internally produced material. The BOM list contains the component materials and quantities required to produce a semi-finished or finished good. Depending on the price control with standard or variable average price of the BOM components, the material cost of the product is calculated.
  • A work center identifies a machine or work area where a production process is performed. In addition to BOM, a routing is created to indicate the processes necessary to produce a material. In production planning, a routing has series of operations which also includes work centers and activity quantities.
  • A master recipe is used for batch-oriented process manufacturing. Rate routings and product cost collectors are used in repetitive manufacturing. Product cost collectors are created for each production version.

Production versions refer to a combination of a BOM and master recipe or routing required for material production.

Step #4: Costing Run

Costing run is used to cost mass volumes of materials in a particular company code. This allows user to select materials, detonate quantity structure, cost, analyse, mark and release.

Pre-requisites:

  • Material Masters (MRP, Accounting and costing views)
  • Quantity Structure (BOM, Master Recipe or Routing and Production versions)
  • Condition types and production Information records
  • Configuration
  • CO Master Data

Materials are costed for the duration of the annual or monthly costing process. To execute costing runs, analyse results, mark and release costs transaction CK40N is used. This can be formed using controlling area, costing version, costing variant, company code and transfer control. Therefore, costing run can only be made for one company at a time. It has also created for a specific range of date.

The costing run as 6 steps namely:

  1. Selection
  2. Structure Explosion
  3. Costing
  4. Analysis
  5. Marking
  6. Release

After executing each step, error log has to reviewed and resolved. Execute each and every step after resolving the errors. If in case the results do not update after execution, press the refresh button.

Step #5: Actual Cost

This is determined through actual expenses, purchase price and conformed production quantities. These costs are matched to the standard costs through variance analysis to identify profitability and make decisions on management.

Pre-requisites

  • Material Masters (MRP, Costing and Accounting views)
  • Quantity Structure (Routers/Master Recipe, BOM and Production versions)
  • Configuration (WIP, Variance or settlement)
  • CO Master Data (Activity types, Actual and Primary and secondary cost elements)
  • Assessment/Distribution Cycles, Actual Statistical Key Figures

The production confirmation includes, product cost by order, actual production yield, scrap, and activity quantities. The production costs are composed on the production orders for review and settlement. In product cost by period, product cost collectors are used to calculate WIP, variances, and settlement instead of the planned orders.

In repetitive manufacturing, the quantities established based on the target cost created on the valuation variant for WIP or scrap. In discrete manufacturing, WIP is the dissimilarity between debit and credit of an order.

The variance analysis of input and output side is offered by SAP Finance training.  Finally, we must settle our orders or product cost collectors. Product Cost Collectors and orders are debited within actual costs during production.
